DUBLIN — City Administrator David Carrothers told city council members that the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and American Legion plan to purchase five large granite memorials to honor veterans.

Council members were asked late Monday to think about suitable locations for the memorial.

Carrothers said the fountain area on Patrick Street is not an acceptable area because any ceremonies held there are drowned out by the heavy traffic noise.

Also Monday, the Dublin City Council approved selling two vacant lots taken for nonpayment of taxes to Tyson Shane Glocar during Tuesday night’s regular meeting.

Erath County Tax Assessor Jennifer Carey said the lots would not sell through normal means and that Glocar made an offer of $1,500 for 630 N. Park and $2,000 for 515 E. Dobkins, which was accepted by council members.

In other business, the council authorized Fire Chief James Fritts to proceed with purchasing a Kenworth cab and chassis for approximately $212,000 from the Houston Galveston Area Council.

Talon P.E. requested permission from the council to drill two ground water monitoring wells, both located near the Dublin National Bank and on Elm Street. The council refused the request.
